Every Sunday from 11am to 3pm, Time Out Market Chicago's chefs offer a variety of delicious brunch dishes, from Hangover Ramen with shrimp and smoked pork to a stack of Buttermilk Pancakes layered with whipped mascarpone. Order as much as you want, grab a mimosa pitcher from the bar and stick around from 1 to 3pm for a set of tunes from the Chicago Soul Jazz Collective.
As it turns out, some of the best things in life—or at least, some of the best things to do in Chicago—are free. May marks the unofficial start of summer festival season in Chicago, so prepare to hit the streets for food, drinks, live music and plenty of rollicking celebrations (note that while these are technically free, it's usually good form to toss in a small donation). Plus, don't miss out on gallery shows, concerts and other recurring events that won't cost you a dime. Ready to save some money? Check out more of the best free things to do in Chicago this month.
